  8. In script file we defined function fun() within that we used setInterval() method with waiting time as ‘1 second’ so within this method what we had done will updated for each 1 seconds.
  9. Here we created date object ‘date’ by using this we collected current seconds and stored on variable ‘s’ and updated for each seconds then we appended result in timer on div element by id ‘demo’ for displaying timer on webpage.
  10. In first setTimeout method we sets waiting time as 10 seconds (10000) after reach 10sec we hiding first question by id ‘q1’ display property value set to ‘none’ and initially we hidden question 2 ‘q2’ so we sets it display property to ‘block’ for visible to user.
  11. After finished 20seconds we hiding both questions by second setTimeout method with their display property sets to ‘none’ and timer value changed to ‘TIME UP’ string.
  12. Lastly using setTimeout method when it reach 21sec we sets timer display property also ‘none’.
